PayPal fees

Does anyone know what the PayPal fees are if the buyer is in the US? I've worked out a price of £47 for the items and shipping but I'm not sure if there are going to be additional international fees for conversion as I've only sold within the UK but don't want to leave myself out of pocket, thanks

I don't think being in the US makes a difference to fees. Just charge the buyer in GBP then if there are any additional costs due to currency conversion they will pick them up at their end, rather than yours.

I think it's somewhere in the region of 20p + 3% of the total price.

The fees apply to where the seller is. I thought UK-located Paypal users had 3.4% + 20p. USA sellers do have a different fee structure IIRC, this says 2.9% + 30 cents.

Oh nuts, I may be wrong. This says 1% surcharge for UK sellers to USA. Better assume 4%, then?! I have paypal funds in dollars & GBP, so I manage to avoid some of that bother.

Thanks, lljkk the second link is I think for personal payment. I think i'll give an all in price of £50 to be safe to cover everything, hopefully just normal fees. If I get charged more i've learnt a lesson for the future!!
